Anyone feel like they have just been forgotten by the schools? I had one interview and haven't heard from them in a while now, I don't know if I'm waitlisted, rejected, accepted (probably not :mad: ).
Also I haven't heard from some schools at all. Anyone else in this situation??
I cannot stand all this waiting and uncertainty, its driving me crazy!!

Congrats to the accepted, but please don't smash the dreams of the qualified applicants still waiting to hear back, I still have hope! (But I am a realist so I have already re-grouped for the next app. cycle)

Looked into some masters programs, but still trying to be hopeful :). I just was curious how many ppl are in this situation. Misery loves company.

I was thinking an MBA, but I don't know if that's frowned upon since it's not science based. I know that running a practive is running a buisness so I thought it would be helpful for the future. I would def. like some feedback.

I'm also curious about that, has anyone completed an MBA and gotten into dental school. Isn't the point of doing a post-bacc to improve your gpa and demonstrate you can cope with advanced science courses?
Because heaven forbid if you don't get in afterwards an MBA seems a lot more useful than a masters in terms of getting a job.

Believe you me, they know who I am. I have been hounding them... but they cannot give me my status over the phone, they just tell me to wait to hear from them :confused: , so unfortunately all I can do is just sit around :thumbup: and of course complain on this forum!

I'm in the same situation, (applied very late and haven't heard from any schools yet)... thinking about applying to a 1yr course based masters program next year. Not to hijack your thread, but it seems like all the schools require GRE scores for this, or am I missing something?

If you search through previous threads you can find a lot if info on masters. I've read some posts where ppl claim that instead of the gre you can submit dat? I'm not sure tho, but there def is a lot of stuff on here about masters.

Yea, I am in the same situation you are. But I have decided to retake my DATs in april (even though i got 20/20/18) and also do a 5th year master's program in chemistry while I wait. It sucks that school will not even acknowledge the application. Oh well, i guess better luck next time for me and you!
